1:1 sessions are skill training, artist development, coaching and mentorship all in one.

I will: develop your knowledge of Ableton Live to a powerful level; motivate you with the confidence to create; help you identify and smash your creative blocks; help you set goals and take the right steps to achieve them; provide homework to ensure you are implementing new skills.

for 1:1 tuition, I offer 1.5 hour lessons – enough time to ensure significant learning, breakthroughs in your knowledge every session, and hands-on experience of music production. Homework and email contact Q&A provided between classes.
